DC Clean Marina Partnership

DC Clean Marina Partnership logo

The District of Columbia Clean Marina Program, established in 2002, is a partnership among the National Park Service National Capital Region (NPS), which manages the many shorelines in the area; the District Department of the Environment, which manages water quality; and yacht clubs and marinas in the District. The program promotes environmental stewardship, waste minimization and pollution prevention at marinas, clubs, and boatyards on the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and the Washington Channel.  It is a voluntary program that encourages marina and boat club operators, as well as individual boaters to take steps to reduce pollution and protect and improve environmental quality. The Clean Marina Guidebook, produced by NPS is essentially a premade Environmental Management System that serves as a methodical instructional guide. It identifies practices required by regulation in addition to best management practices which can take a marina beyond compliance.
